Foreword 

In this volume, we do not attempt to 
draw up a book without faults and short- 
comings, but we do endeavor to present a 
book that portrays the fun, service, and 
activities of the life at Lincolnton High 
School and abounds in incidents that in years 
to come will bring glowing reminiscences of 
past days treasured by us all.

Senior Class History 



The year nineteen hundred and twenty-seven and the month of September will hold a 
place in our memories for many years. At that time an awkward group of boys and girls, 
so called students, stormed the threshold of our new flying field, the dear old L. H. S. We 
entered the sacred portals with the knowledge that we would be looked upon with scorn by 
the experienced pilots and instructors of the field, but the head winds were in the right 
direction and blew us along a smooth course. We were determined to do our b:st and with 
this determination in our hearts wc went through our freshman year and emerged with a 
record for ground flying that well repaid all our efforts. Our class upon entering the instruc- 
tion field had been eighty-four strong, but chiefly due to that old law. "the survival of the 
fittest," thirty-four took nose dives and parachuted to the ground. 

We entered our sophomore year with a membership of fifty cadets with Jesse Robinson 
as navigator and John T. Perkins, Erleen Padgett. Catherine Wolfe as able assistants. We 
weathered the storms and passed another happy and successful year. The crowning happiness 
came at commencement when after joyful anticipation, our hopes were realized as we proudly, 
and with measured tread, carried the daisy chain for the graduation class of 19 29 flyers. 

Now came our third year of flying, when we could leave the ground and spread our 
wings for a little flight of our own. We were the pursuit plane of the Seniors and with 
Leanora Gamble, president of the Junior squadron as aviatrix. and a corps of able mechanics, 
the plane was guided skillfully out to sea and returned safely to the home never once running 
into a cloud bank, nor making a forced landing. Our cruise was well on its way, and with 
united efforts, we were well started for a busy and successful year ahead. 

Since the beginning of the year we had been looking forward to and working for the 
party that is given annually by the Junior class in honor of the Seniors; and on that night of 
nights, April 25, 1930. we gave a reception at the Woman's Aviation Field, that has not 
had its precedent in the history of our school. The banquet and delightful entertainment 
provided during those all too fleeting hours were greatly enjoyed by all who attended and 
will ever be a fragrant memory. And, thus, with Juniors selected as marshals, we ended a most 
happy and industrious year. 

Now 1931. The flying squadron is getting ready for a non-stop flight. The flying 
field is broad and wide, the ships are throbbing with life, and wc are ready for the grand take 
off. The old hangars look far away in the distance. Our able instructor is Buck Mauncy, 
President of the Senior class, and never once has be guided us into an air pocket from which 
he and his navigators could not pilot us safely back to the old landing field. 

With the High School log, the PlNE BURR, well on its way by the ever striving efforts 
of our experienced aviator, Fred Rudisill. as editor-in-chief, we have already made an altitude 
record, and feel wc have surmounted one of the chief difficulties of the year. 

The ships are ready, the motors are running, the controls are safe, our wings are soaring, 
our hearts are throbbing, and we are off on our first solo flight, after four years of study, 
love, laughter, and friendship, into the blue ether of heaven. With valiant hearts full ol 
courage and faith in ourselves and the classmates of 1931, our test flights arc over, and we 
are ready for the endurance tests of the future.

Senior Class Prophecy 



EXTRACTS FROM A TOURIST'S DIARY 



September 5, 1951. — Lincolnton, N. C. — Today I started on my tour from my old 
home town. I went around to Congress street to tell my pastor, Farrell Huggins, good-bye. 
I then rode out to the orphanage to tell my old schoolmates, Mr. John Thomas Hoyle and 
his wife who was formerly Miss Madge Baker, that I hoped they would write. It was all 
a very sad leave-taking, but I brighten up when 1 think of my other schoolmates that I 
am going to see. 

September 12. 1951. — Richmond. Va. — I'm so excited I can hardly write. I went to 
Brown, Barnum K Bailey Circus today. I was sitting in the tent quite unconcerned till who 
did I see ride into one of the rings on ponies but Matie Barlow and Helen Whitesides. I could 
hardly believe my eyes when I saw Mary Page hanging by her teeth from the top of the tent. 
Over at my left was James Miller, walking a rope. My excitement overcame me and I 
dashed to the dressing tents to see my old classmates. And who should I bump into, but 
Mabel Seagle with Fred Brown. Fred, it seems, is the owner, or one of the three owners, 
and Mabel is treasurer of his famous circus. Helen, Mary, Matie, and James had been acrobats 
in the circus for ten years. Can you imagine my delight in running upon them like this p 
We are going to have a reunion dinner tonight after the performance. 

September 20. 1951. — Washington. D. C. — I went sight-seeing on a bus today. I 
started to go for an aeroplane ride, but I'm glad I didn't, because guess who the guide was? 
Russell Mullen! He invited me out to see his wife. They live in a beautiful apartmenj house. 
Who do you think his wife turned out to be ? It was Margaret Hallman. Margaret works 
on the staff of a paper here. She also had a surprise waiting for me — a dinner party made 
up of all the class of '31 that live in Washington now: George Digh, the President's secretary; 
Marshall Shives. aviator in the air mail service; Fred Rudisill, chief mechanic at the airport; 
Maude Bandy, the chief librarian at the Carnegie Fibrary. All of them were married, but 
their better-halves were left at home, so we could have a good time talking over old times. 

September 30. 1951. — New York. N. Y. — I went to the Ziegfeld Follies tonight and 
when the popular dancers called "Twinkletoe Twins" appeared, to my surprise, they proved 
to be Dagmar Proctor and Fena Heafner. I knew I had to wait until after the show, and 
then I sent my card to them. I don't think I have ever received a warmer welcome. They 
have taken up the fad of slumming, and slumming I had to go. In one awfully dark, smoky, 
underworld cafe, we sat down. Our escorts pointed out the dangerous "Two Gun Bob." 
We instantly recognized Robert Little as that fascinating character. Robert, it seems, has 
never really shot anyone, but his reputation has pulled him out of many a tight place. We 
did not speak to him. because he was too busy watching some men of an enemy gang. 

October 3. 1951. — Chicago. Illinois. — This was a very dull town until tonight. I 
looked up my old friend Julia Bynum, who is a dean in "Saskins School for Young Girls." 
Julia and I went to the movies. Strange to say we did not look at the advertisements, be- 
cause we wanted to be surprised: and we were. Starring in the picture was Erleen Padgett! 
We were very proud of her and wc talked so loudly, trying to let everybody know that we 
knew her. that we were almost put out of the theatre. We made such a fuss about being 
insulted, as we called it. by an upstart of an usher that we stamped back to the manager's 
office to complain. Will wonders never cease? James Rhodes is the manager and David Yoder 
is the head electrician of the theatre. The usher and the complaint were completely forgotten 
in the joy of the unexpected meeting. Tomorrow I am going to lunch with that wealthy 
spinster, Ersie Brotherton. 

October 14, 1951. — Boston, Mass. — I walked into a very modern and "ritzy" looking 
shop today. The name of it was "Fa Marguerite Bishop Shoppe." The name sounded so 
familiar that I had to investigate. The shop was named for its owner, Mattie Bishop. Matties 
assistant buyer is Charles Smith. Charles stays in Paris most of the time, and he looks very 
"Frenchy." I picked up the society page of a Boston newspaper today and found that Jane

Costner is the editor. Immediately. I called her. and as she had to write up a brilliant reccp 
tion. she invited me along. She knows everybody, it seems, and I was introduced to so man; 
people that my brain is all mixed up. 

October 25. 1951. — Plainficld. N. J. — I went into the stock market today to buy a 
few shares. "Bud" Page has the controlling interest now. When I saw the wealthy George 
Calvin Page I was quite disappointed, because I expected him to be very dignified. His red 
hair is now white but he still jumps about as much as usual. When I got on the train to 
go back to New York I was looking over a timetable and my eyes fell on the words "Curtis 
Broom. Vice-President." And I was looking at a Cresent Limited timetable. I had to prove 
my suspicions, so I looked him up. and my suspicions were true for once. Curtis always was 
pretty swift, but I never thought I'd ever see him land at the head of the Cresent Limited. 

November 25. 1951. — East Bend. Ind. — Today I went to see Buck Mauney's eleven beat 
the Navy. The critics say Buck is the best coach that Notre Dame has had. I went to offer my 
congratulations after the game, and discovered Pat Cashion to be his assistant. 

November 3 0. 19 5 1. — Montreal. Canada. — I went into the store of the most famous 
furrier in this city today. I found Annie Lee Finger and David Wilkinson as managers. Annie 
Lee and David had been models up until ten days ago, and then they were promoted. I was 
proud to find two of my former classmates making good in Canada. I think I prefer the United 
States, though. Annie Lee told me that Hattie Fortenbury and Dorthy Elmore ran an Oriental 
tea room around the corner, so I hurried around. I was quite surprised at the many different 
nationalities represented in the employed. 

December 7. 1951. — Reno. Nevada. — I had to make train connections here today and 
talk about miracles! I saw Pud Ramsey coming toward me. I nearly ran because I thought I 
was seeing things. Pud told me that she was getting a divorce from her third husband. Her 
first husband shot himself because she flirted so much; her second husband went raving crazy 
for the same reason; but the sad part of it was that Pud's third husband could flirt as much as 
she. and she didn't like that; hence, the third divorce. 

December 10. 1951. — Los Angeles, Calif. — All over the north, east, and west. I have been 
seeing these palatial hot dog stands. On all of them is the phrase "Snookie's" Hot Dogs. Today 
I was determined to find out for myself what they were. So into the finest "Snookie's" hot 
dog stand I could find. I went. I asked the cashier why the "Snookie." and she explained that 
all over ten states was a chain of hot dog stands owned by a very wealthy woman. I asked 
who the woman was and she said, "There she is coming out of her office." My goodness! It 
was Leanora Gamble. And behind her was Elizabeth Stroupe. her companion and secretary. I 
was tickled to death. She told me all about her wealth and how she got her start by marrying 
a multi-millionaire, who gave her a few millions to play with and she turned them into hot 
dogs. About 3:00 in the afternoon she took me to see all her hot dog stands in Los Angeles. 
Before she could go. she had to take her dancing lesson under Woodrow Blanton, who has taken 
Ned Wayburn's place in the dancing world. I went with her afterwards, and we rode out to 
the famous school of horseback riding. Louise Weaver owns this school and many of the most 
famous stars patronize it. Evic Hinkle and Mary Keever are instructors in this school. Then 
came the tour of hot dog stands. North Carolinians were managers of every one! Ed Caldwell. 
Herman Smith, and Yates Ward had all been imported from North Carolina to be pages for 
the great "hot dog queen." I rode out to the beach at sunset by aeroplane. In one of the most 
secluded spots. I saw a young lady painting. Minnie Carpenter had won much distinction in 
Paris as an artist, but I did not know she had returned until I saw her painting right before me. 

December 12. 1951. — Hollywood, Calif. — I have had so many surprises since the begin- 
ning of my journey that I hated to leave for home tonight so I can get there for Christmas, 
but it all can't last forever. I'm going to have one last party by going to see Quilmer Fortenbury 
battle for the world's heavyweight championship tonight with Mabel Warlick and Catherine 
Wolfe, the two most famous movie stars of Paramount. Paul Childcrs. Quilmer's manager, gave 
us a few ringside seats for the party.

Senior Class Poem 



We've toiled o'er books for many years 

Of the future thinking, 
But today our parting day nears 

Past with future linking. 

And now we think of classmates dear 

With whom we have to part. 
But. if we think too long, I fear 

The tear drops soon will start. 

Alas, the parting hour is come 

We stare it in the face, 
And think of things that must be done 

To join the faithful race. 

Come look afar with knowing eyes 

At what awaits us there. 
For striving hard to win the prize 

Must mean no time to spare. 

For coming years will bring no lack 

Of high success and fame 
If you who follow in our tracks 

Will make this goal your aim. 

To teachers we sincerely loved, 

To school we'll ere be true, 
Our love for you will ne'er be moved — 

To all we say adieu! 

Julia Bynum, Class Poet.

"He says he thinks I am the nicest girl in town. Shall I ask him to call?" 
"No, dear: let him keep on thinking so." 

With so many college men hopefully or perhaps hopelessly trying to 
raise moustaches, many co-eds are feeling down at the mouth more frequently. 

She: "Well, at last, I've passed French." 

He: "Honestly?" 

She: "Aw! Don't be so inquisitive!" 

The dryest day in the history of the world was when an Irishman, a 
Scotchman, and a Jew went in to buy a drink and the Irishman didn't have 
any money. 

He: "I'm crazy about you." 

She: "Well, run along: this is no insane asylum." 

An Englishman entered a Scotch butcher shop and ordered: "A sheep's 
head." 

The butcher called down to his assistant in the cellar: "Aleck, bring 
up a sheep's head." 

Then the Englishman chimed in: "I want an English sheep's head." 

So the Scotch butcher shouted down the cellar again: "Aleck," he 
instructed, "take the brains out of it." 

Visitor: "How many controls are there on your radio set?" 

Married victim: "Three: my mother-in-law, my wife, and my daughter." 

Customer: "Chicken croquettes, please." 
Waiter: "Fowl ball!" 

Adam: "Eve! You've gone and put my dress suit in the salad again." 

Then there was the well known absent-minded professor who put his 
soiled shirt in bed and jumped down the clothes chute. 

Frosh : "Say, there, mister! Can you tell me the name of Noah's wife?" 
Soph: "Sure, Joan of Arc. Don't ask silly questions." 

"Say, Bill, define a worm." 

"I can't. What is it?" 

"Well, Bill, a worm is a caterpillar that played strip poker and lost."

John (speaking on telephone): "Is that you, sweetheart?" 
Phyllis: "Yes-s; who's talking'" 

John: "I can't find that pair of socks I lost last month." 
Sam: "Try washing your feet." 

Tony: "I like to go to school, but I never feel safe. I believe the place 
is haunted. 

Bud: "Why haunted?" 

Tony: "They are always talking about the school spirit." 

Bud: "There is a lot of electricity in my hair." 
Zabo: "No wonder. It's connected to a dry cell." 

"George: "I've had a terrible warning of approaching death." 
Buck: "Oh, yeah?"

Betty Co-ed: "Listen, you don't look like twins to me." 

Collegian: "How did she like your new moustache?" 
Ditto: "Darn it! I forgot to show it to her." 

"Why do they call sailboats 'she'?" 

"Because they make a better showing in the wind." 

Rich Suitor: "I would die for you."

Bud: "Why do girls prefer Virgil to all the other poets?" 
Miss Rainwater: "Because he sings of arms and a man." 

Miss Saunders: "Buck, what are the two genders?" 

Buck: "Masculine and feminine. The masculines are divided into tem- 
perate and intemperate and the feminine into frigid and torrid." 

Maude: "Miss Rainwater, what is the Latin race?" 
Miss Rainwater: "It is a race between the pupil's pony and the teacher's 
goat."

Meredith College 

RALEIGH. N. C. 

Offers Young Women Three 
Distinct Advantages — 

1. It is recognized as a Standard Col- 
lege by the Southern Association of 
Colleges, by the Association of 
American Universities, and by the 
American Association of University 
Women. 
1. It is a small college — student body 
of 500 — large enough for enthusi- 
asm, but small enough for students 
and teachers all to be good friends. 
3. It is a Christian College — with 
Christian atmosphere and motive 
and freedom.
